Wealth Strategist – Investor – Coach
From a small town boy growing up in the remote outback of rural Queensland, to becoming the founder of Australasia’s most powerful property wealth creation engine – Positive’s Group CEO Jason Whitton is on a mission to change the way we look at wealth.
With over 20 years’ experience in the real estate industry, in which his company has closed over 10,000 property deals, coached 7500 clients, and generated a combined property portfolio of over 5.1 billion dollars – Jason has never been more dedicated to sharing his knowledge and wisdom to help people on their path to wealth creation.

When it comes to building a property portfolio, I often find there is overarching confusion surrounding different types of strategies and actions related to real estate. What I’m talking about is property investing versus property trading. Yes, they actually are two completely different things that are separated by contrasting behaviours, attitudes, knowledge, risks and costs.
Financially, you’re earning $100k a year and you know you will be able to purchase a property with the equity you’ve built up in your home, but you don’t have enough leftover in your regular pay packet to actually pay off that property long term. So how do people do it then? Is property investing only for the really wealthy with substantial income to spare?
There is no one true measure of success when it comes to property investing. Yield, growth, cash return, more properties, more income, more satisfaction… The list goes on.
How you choose to measure your own success as a property investor is really up to you, and hopefully, at least one part is that you get some real satisfaction or joy or excitement out of it.
But the serious side is money.
